How STUPID is CONGRESS to believe him!!

CONGRESS ISN’T STUPID

NOTHING HAS CHANGED SINCE 1906

THEY ARE PAID TO PROTECT THE INTERESTS OF BUSINESS NOT THE WELFARE OF THE PEOPLE.

THEY ARE PAID OFF.

THEY ARE NOT PATRIOTIC!

FYI: The Aldrich Plan strongly influenced the Federal Reserve Act of 1913, which established the Federal Reserve System. Aldrich also sponsored the Sixteenth Amendment, which allowed for a direct federal income tax.

[From David Graham Phillips, “The Treason of the Senate,” Cosmopolitan, April 1906, pp. 628–38.]

“The Treason of the Senate” (1906), David Graham Phillips
Rhode Island is the smallest of our states in area and thirty-fourth in population—twelve hundred and fifty square miles, less than half a million people, barely seventy thousand voters with the rolls padded by the Aldrich machine. But size and numbers are nothing; it contains as many sturdy Americans proportionately as any other state. Its bad distinction of supplying the enemy with a bold leader is due to its ancient and aristocratic constitution, changed once, away back before the middle of the last century, but still an archaic document for class rule. The apportionment of legislators is such that one-eleventh of the population, and they the most ignorant and most venal, elect a majority of the legislature—which means that they elect the two United States senators. Each city and township counts as a political unit; thus, the five cities that together have two-thirds of the population are in an overwhelming minority before twenty almost vacant rural townships—their total population is not thirty-seven thousand—where the ignorance is even illiterate, where the superstition is medieval, where tradition and custom have made the vote an article of legitimate merchandising.

The combination of bribery and party prejudice is potent everywhere; but there come crises when these fail “the interests” for the moment. No storm of popular rage, however, could unseat the senators from Rhode Island. The people of Rhode Island might, as a people and voting almost unanimously, elect a governor; but not a legislature. Bribery is a weapon forbidden those who stand for right and justice—who “fights the devil with fire” gives him choice of weapons, and must lose to him, though seeming to win. A few thousand dollars put in the experienced hands of the heelers, and the senatorial general agent of “the interests” is secure for another six years.

The Aldrich machine controls the legislature, the election boards, the courts—the entire machinery of the “republican form of government.” In 1904, when Aldrich needed a legislature to reelect him for his fifth consecutive term, it is estimated that carrying the state cost about two hundred thousand dollars—a small sum, easily to be got back by a few minutes of industrious pocket-picking in Wall Street. . . .

And the leader, the boss of the Senate for the past twenty years has been—Aldrich! . . .

The greatest single hold of “the interests” is the fact that they are the “campaign contributors”—the men who supply the money for “keeping the party together,” and for “getting out the vote.” Did you ever think where the millions for watchers, spellbinders, halls, processions, posters, pamphlets, that are spent in national, state and local campaigns come from? Who pays the big election expenses of your congressman, of the men you send to the legislature to elect senators? Do you imagine those who foot those huge bills are fools? Don’t you know that they make sure of getting their money back, with interest, compound upon compound? Your candidates get most of the money for their campaigns from the party committees; and the central party committee is the national committee with which congressional and state and local committees are affiliated. The bulk of the money for the “political trust” comes from “the interests.” “The interests” will give only to the “political trust.” And that means Aldrich and his Democratic (!) lieutenant, Gorman of Maryland, leader of the minority in the Senate. Aldrich, then, is the head of the “political trust” and Gorman is his right-hand man. When you speak of the Republican party, of the Democratic party, of the “good of the party,” of the “best interests of the party;” of “wise party policy,” you mean what Aldrich and Gorman, acting for their clients, deem wise and proper and “Republican” or “Democratic.” . . .

No railway legislation that was not either helpful to or harmless against “the interests”; no legislation on the subject of corporations that would interfere with “the interests,” which use the corporate form to simplify and systematize their stealing; no legislation on the tariff question unless it secured to “the interests” full and free license to loot; no investigations of wholesale robbery or of any of the evils resulting from it—there you have in a few words the whole story of the Senate’s treason under Aldrich’s leadership, and of why property is concentrating in the hands of the few and the little children of the masses are being sent to toil in the darkness of mines, in the dreariness and unhealthfulness of factories instead of being sent to school; and why the great middle class the old-fashioned Americans, the people with the incomes of from two thousand to fifteen thousand a year—is being swiftly crushed into dependence and the repulsive miseries of “genteel poverty.”

The digital guru who helped Donald Trump to the presidency

The woman who ran Project Alamo for Brad Parscale, Theresa Hong, famous for her BBC interview, has deleted her twitter account with recent news of Parscale being named the Trump 2020 campaign manager. Digital strategist Brad Parscale, who was just named as Trump’s 2020 campaign manager, serves on the management team of a penny-stock firm with longstanding ties to a convicted fraudster.

Lying is part of his brand, that’s why we all pay attention! They are  all about getting rich here, and politics is just a vehicle. Politics is just a side show not the main show.

Many of the “Tech Gods”  actually help him to win. The truth appears over time.

A key insider from the Trump campaign’s digital operation – Theresa Hong – unravels for the first time the role played by social media and Facebook’s in getting Trump into the White House.

OH YES and Google says it doesn’t believe leak was malicious despite suspicious appearances. Dan Goodin – 11/13/2018, 2:25 AM

Google lost control of several million of its IP addresses for more than an hour on Monday in an event that intermittently made its search and other services unavailable to many users and also caused problems for Spotify and other Google cloud customers. While Google said it had no reason to believe the mishap was a malicious hijacking attempt, the leak appeared suspicious to many, in part because it misdirected traffic to China Telecom, the Chinese government-owned provider that was recently caught improperly routing traffic belonging to a raft of Western carriers though mainland China.

The leak started at 21:13 UTC when MainOne Cable Company, a small ISP in Lagos, Nigeria, suddenly updated tables in the Internet’s global routing system to improperly declare that its autonomous system 37282 was the proper path to reach 212 IP prefixes belonging to Google. Within minutes, China Telecom improperly accepted the route and announced it worldwide. The move by China Telecom, aka AS4809, in turn caused Russia-based Transtelecom, aka AS20485, and other large service providers to also follow the route.

According to BGPmon on Twitter, the redirections came in five distinct waves over a 74-minute period. The redirected IP ranges transmitted some of Google’s most sensitive communications, including the company’s corporate WAN infrastructure and the Google VPN. This graphic from regional Internet registry RIPE NCC shows how the domino effect played out over a two-hour span. The image below shows an abbreviated version of those events.

Intel Corporation project to develop a U.S. privacy law

We have drafted a proposed privacy bill and have asked for both experts and the public to comment on it at http://usprivacybill.intel.com . This is an experiment in participatory democracy to use technology to bring out some of the discussion that normally happens behind closed doors and let everyone take part. I have included below some background on the project and an overview of the bill. I am interested to know what members of the list think of our proposal.

Why Pass a US Federal Privacy Law?
Effective privacy regulation is critical to allow technologies like artificial intelligence to help solve the world’s greatest challenges. The combination of advances in computing power, memory and analytics create the possibility that technology can make tremendous strides in precision medicine, disease detection, driving assistance, increased productivity, workplace safety, education and more. At Intel we are developing many of these technologies and are focused on integrating artificial intelligence capability across the global digital infrastructure. At the same time, we recognize the need for a legal structure to prevent harmful uses of the technology and to preserve personal privacy so that all individuals embrace new, data-driven technologies. At Intel we know that privacy is a fundamental human right and robust privacy protection is critical to allow individuals to trust technology and participate in society.

What the US needs is a privacy law that parallels the country’s ethos of freedom, innovation and entrepreneurship. That law needs to protect individuals and enable for the ethical use of data. As noted above, the use of data by new technologies such as artificial intelligence will help us solve some of the most vexing global problems while spurring economic growth. That ethical use of data will be critical as we use the data to train artificial intelligence algorithms to detect bias and enhance cyber security. In short, it takes data to protect data. The US needs a law that promotes ethical data stewardship, not one that just attempts to minimize harm. A non-harmonized patchwork of state legislation will cause companies to default to restrictive requirements and the result will decrease the likelihood of realizing technology’s great potential to improve lives.

How is the proposal structured?
The law uses the Fair Information Practice Principles (FIPPs) from the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development’s (OECD) Guidelines Governing the Protection of Privacy and Transborder Flows of Personal Data. The OECD FIPPs are “the Global Common Language of Privacy” and many of the privacy laws around the world are based on them. For the past few years, Intel has worked on a “Rethinking Privacy” initiative to take the OECD FIPPs and show how they can be implemented in law differently to promote the innovative and ethical use of data.

Collection Limitation
The law encourages organizations to create new mechanisms for individuals to provide meaningful consent for data use. Most uses of data will require a risk/benefit analysis that will restrict an organization from using data in a way that creates undue risk for individuals. However, in many situations, individuals may be ok with these risks, and will want to have the benefits of the use of the data. This bill encourages organizations to create mechanisms where those individuals can make informed choices.

Data Quality
As artificial intelligence tools are deployed across more industry sectors, it will be critical that the data used to train those algorithms has adequate diversity and volume. For example, for precision medicine, it is critical that the algorithms are trained with sufficient data from ethnic and racial minorities. This is one reason that international data flows are so important. This bill allows for the access to the data that creates better quality in the algorithms, while also requiring organizations to measure that data quality and adjust for any deficiencies.

Purpose Specification
It is critical that organizations state their purposes for collecting and processing data. The law makes clear those purposes must be described narrowly and specifically.

Use Limitation
Our proposal requires organizations to analyze the risks and benefits from the use of data. It also requires organizations to control the uses of data from the entities to which it transfers data.

Security Safeguards
The bill requires organizations to adopt reasonable measures to protect personal data.

Openness
Research shows that for the most part people do not read privacy policies. However, privacy policies can play a useful role to describe how an organization uses personal data. Our proposal requires three types of policies to foster that understanding: 1. An explicit notice when particularly sensitive data is being collected, which will enable better informed consent, 2. A thorough report of the organization’s use of personal data, to enable regulators and advocates to better understand the entity’s practices, and 3. Publication of the traditional privacy policy, but with more detailed information on the purposes of data collection.

Individual Participation
It is critical to understand when organizations have data, and for the individuals to whom that data relates to have an ability to object when that data is either incorrect or when its use will disproportionately cause harm.

Accountability
The law encourages organizations to implement robust privacy programs that will decrease the risk of data misuse and security breaches.

How will the law be enforced?
Robust, harmonized and predictable enforcement is necessary. The US Federal Trade Commission (Commission) has decades of experience protecting privacy. What the Commission needs are: 1. More resources, 2. Authority to oversee all industry sectors, 3. A clear mandate to develop guidance and regulations to communicate to organizations how they should implement the FIPPs, and 4. The ability to enforce meaningful but fair sanctions. Our proposal provides all four of those elements, while also preserving a role for State Attorneys General to apply sanctions in situations where the Commission declines to start an enforcement action. The law uses those sanctions as a way to further encourage organizations to demonstrate their accountability, by allowing those entities that adopt robust privacy programs to have a safe harbor from civil penalties.
